  You Are Appreciated

The Appreciation Celebration also provided an opportunity to show appreciation to the men and women who have served in the United States military. Veterans from every branch of  service were recognized during the Fourth of July event.

2012 Jackson County 4th of July Appreciation Celebration

An exhilarating fireworks show put the exclamation point at the end of Jackson County's Fourth of July Appreciation Celebration.

Jackson County residents made bringing Major League Baseball’s 2012 All-Star Game to Kansas City possible through supporting renovations to Kauffman Stadium. This Appreciation Celebration was the county's way of saying, “THANK YOU!”

The evening featured a high-flying demonstration by the Skydive Kansas City Exhibition Team, festival foods, live music by the David Basse Orchestra, a salute to veterans and then the biggest every fireworks finale in Jackson County. 

Admission to the event was free.

As part of the celebration, Jackson County also sponsored a two-day All-Star youth baseball tournament. CLICK HERE to discover which teams walked away with the first- and second-place prizes, as well as the sportsmanship trophies.
